* In the initial three ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'' films, the six main characters in each film normally unleash a combined elemental attack; this is seen in the comics as well, where the Bahrag are vanquished by the Toa Mata combining their elemental powers to form a protodermis cage around them -- in the second film, ''Legends of Metru Nui'', the Toa Metru combine their powers to seal away the Makuta the same way. In the third film, ''Web of Shadows'', the six Toa Hordika combine their elemental spinners in an attempt to strike down the villain Roodaka, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero freeing Makuta in the process]], as the stone carried by Roodaka was linked to Makuta's prison.

* The heroes pull one off in the animated special, ''WesternAnimation/FreaknikTheMusical''. This one is unique in that it saves Freaknik and is used to defeat the big bad.
* A bizarre example in ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'': Because of the massive pollution caused by the robot population of Earth Wernstrom and Nixon have aimed an EMP cannon at the Earth with the intention to destroy all robots (who have been gathered at the Galapagos Islands under the guise of a party for this reason). In order to save the robot populace, every single robot on the planet has to blast their exhaust upwards to propel the Earth of the cannon's line of fire, incidentally moving the Earth further away from the Sun, solving the global warming problem.

* At the climax of {{Gamera}} II: Advent of Legion, our hero destroys his foe with the Mana Beam, the force of which is channeled directly from the life of Earth itself.

* In the [[{{Foundation}} Foundations Edge]] story by Issac Asimov, the Second Foundation creates a linkage of all of their mentallics to counter a new threat. [[spoiler:The telepathic planet blocks the link to the connection.]]

* An interesting non-combat example happens in TransformersCybertron, when [[spoiler: most of the good guys and a large number of faceless generic Transformers]] team up to [[spoiler: manually align a rocket booster to save the Jungle Planet after it was damaged by a surprise attack by Galvatron ForTheEvulz]]. The combined power of every Transformer present creates/summons the Spark of Primus from each of their individual sparks and not only ensures the success of their endeavour, it also enhances the effectiveness of [[spoiler: the rocket booster and smoothes the whole process over in a dramatically convenient and climatic way]].

* The final battle with Yakumo in ''YuYuHakusho Poltergeist Report'' should count here. Yusuke's Spirit Gun, Hiei's Dragon, and Kurama's Whip, and Kuwabara's spiritual energy sent [[FillerVillain Yakumo]] through a skyscraper, top to bottom. It may not have completely killed him, but it was pretty damn cool.

** Prof X pulled something similar in the original ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' comics: He went into hiding for months (with the dying Changeling taking his place among the X-Men) and linked every mind on Earth with his to fend off an impending alien invasion.

** Another X-men example. During a mission in Russia, X-men got into a fight with a one-shot villain Soul Skinner, a telepath who got a serious PowerBornOfMadness upgrade after discovering his wife was an undercover KGB agent monitoring him (and that she let their daughter die to avoid blowing her cover). With the X-team on the verge of losing, Psylocke performed a rather unusual move: she found a group of children hiding in a nearby building (the only people in town who hadn't yet been turned EmptyShell by Soul Skinner's rampage) and linked their minds into her psychic knife. Then she stabbed Soul Skinner with it. Since his powers were pretty much powered by {{Wangst}}, the concentrated ChildrenAreInnocent shut down his brain.

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has the Giga Dril Breaker, which is already a powerful and awesome attack on its own, get an upgrade in the movie. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duf_39yHrnE The spirits of everyone in the DaiGurren-dan are infused into it, allowing Simon to blast through the generals' gestalt Gunmen]]. It's pretty awesome.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/KillLaKill'', ''[[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Gurren Lagann]]'''s SpiritualSuccessor, has a similar finishing moment: the heroine absorbs the [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman empowering clothes]] of the entire cast (leaving them [[NakedPeopleAreFunny stark naked]]) in order to become powerful enough to blast into [[AstralFinale low orbit]] and face off with the BigBad. [[spoiler: For good measure, she then absorbs the power of the villain herself, and uses it against her]].

* In ''The Rowan'', the first book of AnneMcCaffrey's ''[[TowerAndTheHive Talents]]'' series, humans who are telekinetic and telepathic can "merge," making the "focus" of the merge into a much stronger telekinetic. The Rowan does this with her support staff to deal with an incoming missile, and with four other extremely strong telekinetics to deal with some invading aliens; [[spoiler: when the invading aliens turn out to be the preliminary wave of a much bigger invading fleet, she and her husband, respectively, serve as the foci for merges of ''every psychic woman or man in the galaxy.'']]

A special attack that uses the combined energy of everyone in a cast with the coup-de-grace, usually but not neccessarily, being delivered by the lead. It can be an actual attack technique, or it can be used as a powerup for something, such as a SuperMode.

Not to be confused with CombinationAttack or CombiningMecha or AllYourPowersCombined. This is just about collective energy which even the most faceless and generic {{Muggle}} can provide.
